Why Choose Adult Day Services?

Adult day services are a wonderful option in the long-term care continuum.

All persons have the right to a quality life. An essential part of a quality life for an elderly or chronically ill person is the opportunity for care in the least restrictive setting. Adult day services are an option in the long-term care continuum for those who want to remain in their homes.

At adult day services, individuals receive professional services ranging from social activities and therapeutic recreation to nursing care and rehabilitation services. Adult day services are an innovative way to organize and blend traditional health and social services utilizing a group setting and an individualized plan of care.

The New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) contracts with the New York State Adult Day Services Association (NYSADSA) to provide technical assistance to managed care organizations, providers of social adult day services, and those interested in starting an adult day services program. 

NYSOFA and the Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs, located in counties) do not provide technical assistance to individuals or groups who want to start a social adult day services program. Please contact the NYSADSA office at 518-867-8839 or [email protected].
